Archaeological Site Conservation and Management

The GCI has been engaged in the conservation and management of archeological sites since its earliest days. The effective management of archeological sites requires a balance between archaeology's interest in excavation and research and conservation's concern with site stabilization and prevention of deterioration. This balance is frequently complicated by the needs for site presentation, interpretation, and visitor management.

Current projects include:

Conservation and Management of the Tomb of Tutankhamen
   Bulla Regia Model Conservation Project
   Mosaics on Archaeological Sites: Training for Site Managers
   Shelters for Archaeological Sites with Mosaics
   Mosaic Conservation Technician Training
Valley of the Queens
